So DH and I are celebrating our 30th anniversary this summer. I was thinking Punta Cana, Aruba or another cruise (been on 9). I know the cruises are very safe food wise, not so sure about the other 2 and an all inclusive. Any suggestions, I have been to neither and this is our first big vacation being gluten-free. Just realized I'm 6 months free next week. Yip, Yip hooray.

Appreciate any suggestions, thanks

I leave for Aruba in two days, my second visit but first time being Gluten Free, I found many restaurants with gluten free menu's online and if I was interested in others I sent them an email, sometimes specifically asking about a dish, everyone responded and sounded like they had an awareness. I also saw on an Aruba bulletin board I follow some people that had a lot of success in the past several years there. I will be gone for 10 days or so and will report back.

I don't know if you are still decieding on your trip. But here is what I learned in Aruba. We ate out for all meals and only once did I really have to work hard at asking the right questions so that I could feel comfortable enough that she understood what I was asking. Otherwise everyone had a very good knowlege of Gluten Free and what it meant and what was safe for me. One day though a lot of things were not open and we were starving and decided on a chain since I thought it would be safest, that was the only time I got glutened.

Saying all that, I did a lot of research first, and sent emails to anyplace I even thought we might eat at and asked if they could accomidate me and what I could have, I printed those and keep that all in the car in case I needed it. Some places have gluten free menu's online too.

The grocery stores really only had your naturally gluten free foods, no real speciality foods, like crackers, or bread, beer or any of that stuff. We took some of that with us, crackers, pepperoni etc.

If you have any specific questions please feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer. And if you do choose to go and would like to take a great tour let me know.

    • If you're like me, you've already tried all multiple options without very good answers, thus the reason you are on the boards...
    • Yes, I was. I had two weak positive blood work, then an endoscopy not for celiac but was very inflamed, and one positive genetic for celiac. My diet is very limited right now. I am almost paleo. I am really struggling to find food that I can eat and not bother my stomach. I eat a lot of nuts, peanuts, beans, chicken, veggies, fruit, and soups. I have cleaned out the house from gluten (except for my dad's rolls  ) I can not change out pans and cookware. I could try to get my own personal but it would be hard. How did you get glutened? 
    • thleensd, If you have POTS you should look into Magnesium. Here is a thread started by Ennis_Tx that talks about some of it's many benefits. Also see this link from the affibers.org website that mentions specifically Magnesium Taurate's role in arrhythymia's. http://afibbers.org/resources/taurine.pdf I also recommend trying some some Niacinamide and/or a 100 B-complex 3/day.  B vitamins help us manage our stress. If it (Niacinamide) or the B-100 or B-50  causes you to burp in 2 or 3 months (which has Niacinamide in them) then your symptom's could be caused by co-morbid pellagra. Knitty Kitty has given you good advice as well since Celiac's are low in many nutrient's often. Here is my blog post that explains what I believe happened to me. I hope it helps you thleensd the way it did me. Take a B-complex for couple months to see if it helps. Frequency is more important than the amount. 2x day of of a b-complex will allow your serum levels to stay high throughout the day helping you recover 2x as fast as once a day.  Do the same with Magnesium Glycinate or Magnesium Taurate  (2 to 3 times a day in divided doses) and I think your fatigue will greatly improve or at least your energy levels will increase greatly. I hope this is helpful. ****this is not  medical advice only some of the things I did to help myself. I am too sharing in hopes that other people will hear my story and believe . . . 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • First were you diagnosed with celiac? Second what is you basic diet right now, there are some other common issues that go along with celiac food intolerance wise we might be able to narrow this down. Third did you read hte 101 and make 100% sure that nothing is contaminated? This sounds like you might have contaminated a common used prep surface, utensil, pot. Or have a contaminated spice, condiment, or something new in your house like a cleaner, hygiene product. etc that might be leading to more issues. I can only say if you can get your antibodies checked to see if still elevated to know if it is gluten or something else. Imodium will help with the D, Anise (the spice) and gas X can help with bloating, pepto bismal can help overall. These can help to make it more manageable. \ I might suggest trying to eliminate the chance of it being cookware by getting some cheap new microwave cook ware like a steam tray and omelette maker and just having steamed veggies, eggs, and perhaps a baked sweet potato. Avoid condiments and spices for a bit and see if you can clear it up taking it down to whole unprocessed foods. I find doing this and resetting helps after a issue (I got glutened this last weekend and did the egg and veggie diet with avocado and almonds). Bonus of cooking in the microwave is you get softer end product that is more moist, less burnt and oxidized making digestion easier in my opinion.
    • You didn't ask...but no licking either unless they have gluten free body products on...blush.
